Eye Acupuncture: 2nd element of the Integrated Eye Therapy according to Noll
Nowadays, the possibilities of eye medicine to treat cataracts, for example, are quite advanced. A small operation is sufficient: The opacified lens is replaced by an artificial eye lens. Most patients regain their ability to see well and without limitations. Solely in Germany this operation is performed 700,000 times a year.
In the case of degenerative, chronic eye diseases, ophthalmology does not have any simple solutions. From the perspective of many ophthalmologists, these diseases are usually incurable. An alternative procedure to conventional medicine is offered by naturopathy with eye acupuncture. However, the supervision by your ophthalmologist must still be guaranteed.
Eye Acupuncture according to Prof. Boel
Prof. Dr. John Boel, who is based in Aulum, Denmark, developed the method of eye acupuncture around 1980 and first presented it in Germany in 1996. It is a therapeutic method of naturopathy used for chronic and degenerative eye diseases.
The needles are never placed in or around the eyes
In eye acupuncture, the needles are never placed in or around the eyes. The trigger points defined by Boel are located on the forehead, on the joints of hands and feet and on the knees.
Boel’s eye acupuncture contains elements from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the Japanese ECIWO method and Korean acupuncture. The acupuncture methods are combined depending on the respective indication in order to improve the chances of healing.
The distribution of eye acupuncture according to Prof. Boel
The Boel family now runs several clinics in Denmark (e.g. Akunova Clinic) with an international clientele. Prof. Boel and his son train therapists, doctors and alternative practitioners worldwide in this treatment method.
Michaela Noll was also personally trained by Prof. John Boel and regularly attends his seminars. Conventional medicine and naturopathy can work together for the benefit of the patients.
